Mt. Everest Expedition - 70 Days

Mt. Everest 8,848m (29,028 ft ) is highest mountain in the world on the border of Nepal and Tibet. Everest is named in English and received its official name in 1865 in honor of Sir George Everest, the British Surveyor General (1790–1866). Mount Everest was first climbed on May 29, 1953 by Sir Edmund Hillary from New Zealand and Tenzing Norgay from Nepal. They ascended through to the Everest South Col from the Khumbu Glacier and continued their ascent to the summit via the Southeast ridge. Mount Everest expedition begins at Lukla after 35 minutes mountain flight from Kathmandu. We trek through the numerous Sherpa villages; Chaurikharaka Phakding Namche Tengboche Pheriche Lobuche Gorakshep and finally to the Mt. Everest base camp. Our Sherpa climbing guides set up the first camp , camp II and camp III then continue ascend to Mt. Everest summit. Minimum 2 months holidays required for Mt. Everest Expedition as well as good physical fitness and previous climbing experience. Majestic Himalaya is delighted to offer the world-class service in the Everest Base Camp (EBC) and other higher camps of Mt. Everest from its South face in Nepal. Our Sherpa Climbers will take you very gently from sea level to the highest peak of the world.

Day 03 :  Flying to Lukla & Trek to Phakding - 2,840m/9,315ft

An early morning scenic flight to Lukla. The mountain flight over to Lukla is one of the most beautiful air routes in the world culminating in a dramatic landing on a hillside surrounded by high mountains peaks. In Lukla, we will meet our camp staff and porters.After meeting our other crew members and with some packing and arrangements, we start our trek through the prosperous village of Lukla until we reach Phakding. Phakding lies on the main trade route through the area and there are a number of clean well-built lodges where we can spend the night.

Day 04 :  Trek to Namche Bazar

Continue up the banks of the Dudh Kosi, crossing it twice by small suspension bridges before reaching the village of Monjo where we will enter the Khumbu National Park. Cross the confluence of the Dudh Kosi and the Bhote Kosi on a high suspension bridge and climb steeply for about two hours to reach Namche Bazaar. This is a prosperous trading town and the capital of the Khumbu region with genuine Tibetan artifacts.

Day 05 :  Rest at Namche Bazar

We spend a day in Namche Bazar resting and allowing our bodies to become acclimatized to the altitude of 3,450m (11,300ft).Although a leisure day, it’s important not to remain idle. Health experts always recommend us to stay active and moving during the rest day too instead of being idle. We either spend the day taking a day hike to Thame or visiting Khunde or relaxing and exploring Namche Bazaar itself. Namche Bazzar is the main centre of the Everest (Khumbu) region and has government offices, ATMs, Internet cafes, shops, restaurants, a bakery and a colorful market each Friday evening and Saturday. If we trek a few hundred vertical feet during the day, it will help us to properly acclimatize. Our guides will take us to the Tourist Visitor Center near the headquarter of the Sagarmatha National Park where we can observe an assortment of things related to the first Everest ascenders, Sherpa culture and learn about the various plant and animal life of the Everest region.

Day 06 :  Trek to Thyangboche

The well worn Everest trail contours around the side of the valley high above the Dudh Kosi. Follow the path, savoring the first really good views of the great peaks of the Khumbu: Everest, Lhotse, Nuptse and Ama Dablam. Passing by several villages and numerous tea shops, cross the Dudh Kosi River and make a steep climb to Thyangboche, home of an impressive and newly rebuilt monastery.

Day 07 :  Trek to Dingboche
We pass through several Chortens and Mani walls and small villages. We enjoy lunch with fantastic close-up views of Ama-Dablam. Shaded by rhododendron trees, the path leads gradually down to the river once again to another airy suspension bridge. An hour’s walking from here brings us to Pangboche, an excellent viewpoint for Ama Dablam. Contouring up the valley side, re-cross the river and turn up the Imja valley to reach the picturesque farming village of Dingboche.
 
Day 08 :  Day 08-12: Acclimatization
Day 13 :  Trek to Lobuje

Retrace back to Pheriche before continuing up the trail towards base camp. Reach Dugla situated below the snout of the Khumbu Glacier, a convenient place for lunch. After lunch, the trail starts steeply to climb up beside the glacier moraine. After a couple of hours the track eventually leads to a small cluster of tea houses pleasantly situated at Lobuje.

Day 14 :  Trek to Everest Base Camp

Contouring along the valley-side and looking down on the Khumbu Glacier, follow a reasonable trail to Gorak Shep. This was the site of the base camp in 1953 and now consists of a few small tea houses. Leaving Gorak Shep, the trail leads on to the moraine of the Khumbu Glacier and becomes quite vague, weaving between mounds of rubble and eventually reaching base camp near the foot of the Khumbu Icefall. This will be our home for the next six weeks.

Day 15-17 :  Acclimatization & getting prepared
Day 19-63 :  Ascent of Mt. Everest
Day 64 :   Getting prepared to come back down

All team members return to base camp and assist with packing expedition stores and cleaning the base camp area.
